Our Workplace

The Department

The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) are a motivated and dynamic organisation with around 1,000 staff. We welcome people with diverse experiences and from diverse backgrounds. We value people with ideas, the ability to present them persuasively, and the drive and skill to see them adopted.

Our aim is to create an exceptional, modern and collaborative organisation that drives excellence across the APS and delivers quality outcomes for the Government and the Australian public.

PM&C operates in three main groups:

  • Domestic Policy Group (Social, Economic, and Industry & Jobs Policy) develops economic, environmental, social and urban policies.
  • National Security and International Policy Group provides advice to the Prime Minister and coordinates across Government on intelligence, defence and security, and foreign trade and international relations.
  • Governance Group provides support services for government operations as well as official and ceremonial support. It also provides the Department’s key enabling functions.
